Testimonies of God's Power in the Muslim World

Recent Testimonies from the Muslim World

Here are some of the latest testimonies we’ve heard in response to the broadcasts and discipleship of THE KINGDOM SAT.

Morocco:
“I wanted to learn more about Christianity but I didn’t know where to start and what to do. I’m so thankful for THE KINGDOM SAT follow-up team who walked me through the Bible and explained to me repentance, forgiveness, salvation, and the relationship between God and man.”

Algeria:
“I’m a 64-year-old Muslim and this is the first time I heard about Jesus Christ through your channel. Would you please send me a Bible?”

Egypt:
Mohammad used to be an active member in an Islamic political party. Since retirement, he has been watching different Christian channels, especially THE KINGDOM SAT. After searching for the Truth and comparing the Qur’an to the Bible, he contacted our follow-up team with this message: “I have been reading the books of John and Matthew in the Bible and I now strongly believe the Bible is not corrupted. This has raised many questions inside me but I couldn’t find anyone to answer them. Would you please help me to understand the truth?”

Mohammad is now convinced that the Bible is the Word of God. He argued with the sheikhs about the reliability of the Bible and asked many questions they couldn’t answer. They kicked him and his sons out of work, but he remains grateful that he knows the Truth and that God revealed Himself to him. He is determined to follow Christ until the end, no matter what the cost will be.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Leading The Way. Through your gifts, God is opening doors for the Gospel in closed countries and calling those in darkness into His glorious light. With your help, we can continue to expand this vital evangelism and discipleship outreach into the hard-to-reach places of the world.

Prayers that Move Mountains

Many people seem to think that their prayers don’t matter. Even people who believe in the power of prayer don’t always consider their prayers to be effective.

What is the key to effective prayer? The Bible tells us, “The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective” (James 5:16). A righteous person has a personal relationship with Jesus and is in right standing with God.  A righteous person seeks to obey God, yield to the direction of the Holy Spirit, and see God’s will established on this earth.

We see the effectiveness of prayer by a righteous person in the Old Testament prophet Daniel. His prayers provide a model for us to follow. Read his powerful plea to God in Daniel 9:4-19 and observe the key components of his prayer.

START WITH PRAISE

Daniel began his prayer by praising God, focusing on “the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with all who love him and obey his commands” (Daniel 9:4). Start your prayers with praise and thanksgiving to God.  Praise Him for His glory, power, and love. Thank Him for His daily provision in your life, your salvation, and His many blessings. Spend time just adoring God.

CONFESS YOUR SINS

Daniel confessed that Israel had sinned. He didn’t try to dismiss, justify, or sidestep the fact that Israel had made a grave error.  He didn’t make excuses to God, but took responsibility, saying, “We have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws” (Daniel 9:5).  When you go to God in prayer, acknowledge your sins before him.

APPEAL FOR MERCY

Daniel appealed to God’s mercy, saying, “O Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn way your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem. . . . For your sake, O Lord, look with favor on our desolate sanctuary. . . . We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy” (Daniel 9:16-18). Acknowledge to God that you do not deserve His blessings, but you receive them because He is a merciful and loving God. Humble yourself before God, realizing that personal transformation and corporate revival can only come by His grace.

PETITION FOR GOD TO ACT

Daniel very specifically asked the Lord to take action: “O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act! For your sake, O my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name” (Daniel 9:19). Like Daniel, we are to pray that God will act in a way that brings God the greatest glory and in a way that is the most profound witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Like Daniel, we are to pray boldly and full of faith—without which it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). These are the prayers that God uses to move mountains.

PRAY THE WILL OF GOD

How can you be assured that you are praying for God’s will, and not your own to be done? Immerse yourself in the Word of God. As you pray for specific requests, always check them against Scripture; you can be sure God’s desires for you will never go against His Word. As you read God’s Word and study it, ask the Lord to give you a greater awareness of specific promises that He wants you to pray about and believe for.

We must pray with praise on our lips, a confession of our sin, and with a petition that God will act in the way that accomplishes His purposes and brings Him glory. Then, we must listen very closely to what God may lead us to say or do. God uses individual people to accomplish His purposes. Be willing to be used. 

As you pray, never lose sight of this Truth:  “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9).  Continue to pray and act as God leads, knowing that at God’s appointed time, the harvest will come.

Homegrown Terror Déjà Vu

The shooting of four marines yesterday at a recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was tragic but unfortunately not shocking. With lone wolf attacks on the rise, this act of homegrown terror is reminiscent of a powerful story we shared just a few years ago.

In 2009, Private Andy Long was killed by 23-year-old American Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, born Carlos Leon Bledsoe, who opened fire on soldiers in a drive-by shooting in front of a United States military recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Andy's parents responded with a frank reaction to America's ignorance — and their ability to forgive and love will inspire you.

Watch the Long Family Story and join us in praying for the victims of yesterday's act of domestic terrorism.

 

Who Will Rebuild America's Foundation?

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

I'm honored to call America my adopted homeland -- yet I'm grieved to see this nation crumbling from within. No attack by a foreign power could achieve the devastation America is inflicting on herself. From the marble halls of government to the broadcast towers of the media to the ivory towers of our universities, we are seeing a relentless attack on Christian faith and morality.

Within the church we see professing Christians denying the Truth of the Gospel, trivializing sin, and rejecting the authority of God's Word. The strong, protective walls of God's Truth are being dismantled brick by brick, leaving the next generation defenseless.

The solution to our crisis is in the Word of God. There we read that when Nehemiah heard that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed, he was devastated. "I sat down and wept," he said. "For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven." The waywardness of God's people broke Nehemiah's heart and drove him to his knees in prayer.

Are our hearts broken over the collapsed walls of the church? God honors obedience and answers prayer. Will we report for duty?

Let's say, "Here I am, Lord. Use me to help rebuild the walls of Your church." Then let's rise up and proclaim our faith in Christ. Let's be vibrant witnesses in our communities. And let's encourage each other to stand firm through opposition.

Here at home, Leading The Way continues to proclaim the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ more than 4,300 times every week over the airwaves, reaching the lost and calling believers to stand for Biblical Truth.

In addition to airing the Gospel message via television and radio, we are reaching the digital mission field. In a culture where the average American spends more than seven hours a day on the Internet and mobile devices, God has established Leading The Way as a voice of Truth on strategic digital media platforms.

But this vital evangelistic work is only possible through your partnership. Would you prayerfully consider giving a gift this month to help us proclaim Biblical Truth not just globally, but here at home?

Although our walls are crumbling, together we can fill the cracks with faith, set new bricks in the Gospel, and secure a solid foundation in His Truth.

In Christ,

Signature

Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

July Notes from Our Inbox

Each month Leading The Way receives correspondence from all over the world. Through emails, letters, SMS, and phone calls, viewers and listeners express share how God has touched them through our programming. We hope that this month’s notes from our inbox will be an encouragement to you and an answer to your prayers for Leading The Way.

USA:

“I very much like to read and listen to all that you offer. I have witnessed more and more of God working in my life and I am grateful for having the opportunity to be able to learn from the way Michael presents his messages. God does have a plan for me and Michael has really opened my eyes to the most important message of all.”

Australia:

“I was greatly encouraged in the Lord when an occasion arose where I was resting on a seat outside a supermarket waiting for my daughter. I thought, ‘What a good opportunity to listen to Leading The Way.’ There was a young, unkempt aboriginal lad sitting nearby and as I listened he said, ‘Do you listen to Michael Youssef?’ He is not currently practicing the Christian faith, but he listens to Michael on radio. I don’t presume I might have encouraged him, but my main reason for sharing this is to say how happy I was to hear how the Word of God is going out into the aboriginal community. I praise the Lord and trust the work will bear much fruit for God’s glory.”

USA:

“Your sermon, Conquer Part 4: Heaven or Hell was amazing! What a wake-up call. Everyone needs this message desperately. This is the most important message I’ve ever heard! Thank you Dr. Youssef!”

Morocco:

“I’ve been searching for the truth for the past year and I know now that Christianity is the only true religion. I read the Bible. I know we are called to love each other and not to kill and fight. I want to become a Christian. Would you please tell me more about the Holy Spirit?”

Egypt:

“I want to know about Christianity and I have the desire to accept Christ the Lord of peace and love as my Savior.”

Indonesia:

“We have distributed Leading The Way Navigator devices to the Wana people of Indonesia. It takes 22 hours to go to the Wana village—12 hours by car, five hours by small ship, and five hours by motor bike. Most of the Wana people cannot read or write and are far from the modern world, so the Navigator has become a very effective tool in delivering the good news. Thank you for your partnership and your heart for our people in Indonesia.”
